Work on President Trump’s re-election campaign has started early:
A group of Hollywood stars — including Alec Baldwin, Julianne Moore, Debra Messing, Jimmy Kimmel, Michael Moore and Amy Schumer — is banding together to take on the National Rifle Association (NRA).
The performers and other public figures, including Parkland, Fla., shooting survivor David Hogg, released an open letter on Friday to announce the launch of the NoRA initiative, short for No Rifle Association.
In a blistering message to NRA President Wayne LaPierre, the group says, “You and the gun manufacturers that fund you value money over lives.”
“Your time signing checks in our blood is up,” the letter states. Time magazine was first to obtain the letter.
The campaign, according to organizers, is a “non-partisan coalition of activists, artists, celebrities, writers, gun violence survivors, and policy experts.”
“Nonpartisan”? Haha! I have to hand it to them for being so adept at comedy.
But here’s the funniest part:
According to NoRA’s website, the group intends to head to the NRA’s annual meeting next month.
“We’re going to show up at the NRA convention in Dallas and make them wish they stayed home,” the website says. “We might just sue the pants off the NRA.”
While I do agree that the appearance of liberal celebrity activists does have the effect of making everybody else wish they’d stayed at home, I can’t wait for this bunch to get the crap triggered out of them at the NRA convention. It might be so entertaining that if I didn’t know better I’d think this was an NRA scheme to get more people to attend.
A Hollywood “No Rifle Association”? Life imitates art yet again:
